    1. True story, I actually took a swig of Pepsi from a two litre bottle halfway through reading this comic, then got to the end and was liek “ohlol”

    2. “In one of the more common definitions, the weight of an object, often denoted by W, is defined as being equal to the force exerted on it by gravity. This force is the product of the mass m of the object and the local gravitational acceleration g. Expressed in a formula: W = mg. In the International System of Units, the unit of measurement for weight is the same as that for force: the newton.”

      “In the International System of Units (SI), mass is measured in kilograms (kg).”

    3. In b4 “300 million Americans can’t be wrong”. Because “The 6.5 billion others in the world can’t be wrong” is a stronger argument in comparison.

      2.54 cm in an inch
      12 inches in a foot
      3 feet in a yard
      1760 yards in a mile

      vs.
      100 cm in a metre
      1000 m in a kilometre

      or

      16 drams in an ounce
      16 ounces in a pound
      14 pounds in a stone
      112 pounds in a hundredweight
      2240 pounds in a ton

      vs.

      1000 grams in a kilogram
      1000 kilograms in a tonne
      (or 2.2lbs to the kilogram)

      Unsurprisingly, the metric system uses a base 10 cogent argument, because we all have 10 fingers and toes (unless you’re from Norfolk, or the Deep South). The only scale that is generally not considered base 10 or metric derived is time.

      (For temperature, the metric Celsius scale separates the melting point of water (0ºC) and the boiling point of water (100ºC) at sea level by 100 degrees. The Fahrenheit system uses 32F and 212F, which is 180 degrees apart (a factor of 60), akin to 360 degrees in a circle or 60 seconds per minute. The few countries to use the Fahrenheit system are the US, Belize, and the UK colloquially when it is hot – they use Celsius when it is cold.)

      • Vou escrever em português mesmo, já são 17:06hs e 3 cervejas…
        Segundo o que se conta, e NÃO está assim na Wiki, o Fahrenheit queria uma escala que não tivesse temperaturas negativas, então ele escolheu a menor temperatura possível na época, para 0F, e a temperatura do corpo humano para 100F, que ele mediu na esposa, que estava menstruada, e um tanto febril, (!!!) por isto, na escala “F”, a temperatura normal de um corpo humano ficou 96F!!!!
        Atk 🙂

    6. We do use the metric system in the USA. The military uses it, our scientists use it, it’s taught in schools. Also, go watch Top Gear sometime, they still say “miles” and “miles per hour” over there in the UK.

      • We practically always use miles rather than kilometres here in the UK. I don’t think we really use metric more than imperial or vice versa, we use litres and millilitres for soft drinks and such, but pints for beer and milk for example. In primary school (ages 5 and up) we’re taught to convert metric and imperial, rather than just be taught one or the other.
